This week we're introducing our community to Tracy Komlos (@tracy_komlos)! We've been working with Tracy since the beginning and she's been such a great support to us! She recently paired up with photographer Bettina Bogar (@bettinabogar) to bring us some beautiful shots of our new Fall '15 Collection! Check them out below along with Tracy's Q&A! :)
Tell us a bit about yourself! (Name, age, /position at company/, what you do for a living, family, where you're from... )
Hi, my name is Tracy, I am 24 years old and currently live in Toronto. I recently moved here from Montreal and I am absolutely loving it! I founded Pacific & Park, a travel website that shares travelers experiences from around the world. Bringing together a connected community of travelers. Check it out at www.pacificandpark.com and share your travels with our community!
I also recently started a new venture and partnered up with an awesome photographer, @bettinabogar to build a creative content agency. We work with brands from around the world and travel to beautiful locations to shoot their products and build their content and social outreach. If you'd like information on our services please feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com

Do you have a quote you live by?
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered "Man.... Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."
- The Dalai Lama
This quote always reminds me to enjoy the present time, live life to the fullest and focus on what really matters. You never know what tomorrow will bring you so enjoy today, its as simple as that!
Coffee or tea?
Are you an early bird or night owl?
More recently I've changed up my routine from night owl to an early bird and its definitely a much better and a more productive lifestyle.
Bungee jumping or skydiving?
Hands down skydiving!! I’ve already done it twice! Something about bungee jumping seems unsettling to me.
Beach or snow?
Thanks for joining us on our blog this week! Stay tuned next week to meet another one of our supporters!
